Olympic cycling heroes, including Bradley Wiggins, will bring Nottingham city centre to a standstill next week when they race through the city as part of the Tour of Britain.
Thousands of people are expected to cheer on the Gold Medal and Tour de France winner, along with his team mate Mark Cavendish, during the second stage of the race on Monday, September 10.
As the Tour passes through the city, a number of temporary road closures have been put in place and tram services between Royal Centre and Station Street will be suspended for around quarter of an hour from 9.50 am.
Florian Le Loroux, NET Marketing Manager, explained: “We apologise for any inconvenience this minor disruption may cause, but for such a major national sporting event it’s unavoidable.
“Once the riders have passed through, services should return to normal very quickly.”
Florian went on to explain that the tram still offers the best way for cycling fans to get into the city for a glimpse of their heroes in action.
“With the road closures, we expect a lot of congestion around the city centre so it makes sense to use one of our five park and ride sites before taking a tram to arrive in time for a great view of the riders,” he added.
